    If you carry it concealed they never know.

    If you choose to exercise your rights and open carry (providing it's legal where your located), personally, I would make sure I educated myself well enough to have intelligent conversation with those who wish to deny you your right to open carry. Those who wish to deny you should be educated (add: regarding respecting rights of others) . That manager of Costco store, IMO, does not have the right to deny you your rights. I'm sure the corporate HQ of Costco has some policy regards your rights of open carry in their stores.

    Since there is no sign posted legally or otherwise, then it seems the manager is attempting to inflict his opinion on you and deny you your right (under the law where your located I'm assuming).

    Good on you for being aware those places who are not friendly to law abiding citizens exercising their rights.

    apparently it's costco policy to not allow firewarms in their store unless its a Police offers or LEO who has the right to carry in their stores. I guess what upset me to much was the dumb manager calling my gun a weapon. it's only a weapon when the one in possesion of it chooses to use it in such a sway other wise its me and my right to carry a firewarm for Defensive purposes.

    Yes but it only works that way if you have a permit to carry concealed. i am working on getting my permit however as a responsible gun owner i am not about to carry concealed without my permit.

    A gun has been a "weapon" since the beginning of time until the efforts to "soften" the image recently. There's no reason to split hairs about it with someone, especially a manager who has chosen to ask people to not open carry rather than post signs that prohibit it and possibly decide to post signs to prohibit all carry.

    I am not aware of an effort to boycott those who don't want open carry. I do boycott those I can who don't allow any form of carry. But we don't allow open carry in our offices. Too many people (staff and ownership) that would flip over seeing a gun. I agreed to the signs preventing open carry in order to protect concealed carry.

    We are a "gated" community at work, and I recently was tasked with the chore of installing large "no open carry" signs, on the property entrances.


    Still a concealed carry friendly place, though.



    I understand corp's position on this and respect it as well.

    The only reason i posted that boy cott page link is not because I want to boycott a store. I won't ever boycott Costco its one of my favorite stores.
    And I wasn't an ass with the manager I was very polite with him. He asked me next time to leave my weapon outside the store, and I said I didn't see any signs and he said he didn't have one posted and I said ok I will leave my firearm outside the store next time he then said thanks for agreeing to leave your weapon outside I than responded with it's not a weapon its a Firearm and it becomes a weapon when someone who is in possession of it decides to use it in that way. And then I walked over and seated my butt at a table, and he was ok with me sitting down and waiting for my tires to be completed and installed on my car and then I left. I think he was open to firearms, but he also had to stick with company policy I don't think he was an ass I don't think he was a jerk for not allowing me or others to have one. I believe he was doing his job. So I don't want people to boycott any store the only reason I listed that link was because it was apparently the latest link that shows stores that don't allow firearms. So my main question on that was to find out if there is a later posting of stores and business that I need to be aware of upfront that even though they don't post signs that have a policy that says no firearms. Because I want to be a responsible person with my Gun. And respectful also to company policies.
